Metal Free Same Day Crowns

Dental Health, Services, Technology

If you have a large cavity, cracked tooth, or recently completed a root canal, you’ll need a full coverage dental crown to protect the remaining tooth structure. Modern Dental in Richardson offers custom designed white crowns that are made on-site with the help of 3D imaging and CAD/CAM milling equipment.

What is a CEREC Crown?

CEREC crowns are digitally mapped and milled dental restorations that we make inside of our Richardson dentist office, as opposed to being designed in an off-site laboratory. This eliminates the added design and transportation time without compromising the integrity or aesthetics of the final crown.

Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, your new restoration is made while you relax, read a book, or watch a movie.

Save With More Efficient Treatment

A traditional dental crown takes two appointments to complete…or more, if the crown doesn’t fit properly. For most people, it becomes a more expensive procedure because it means taking extra time off of work to complete the treatment. Not with CEREC technology. The accuracy of CAD/CAM imaging and in-house milling equipment allow our Richardson dentist to complete your cosmetic crown treatment in just one trip to our office.

Advantages of Same Day Crown Treatment

No gooey impressions: The digital “impression” of your teeth is taken by using a small handheld scanning wand. That means no bulky impression trays to tickle the back of your throat.

The most accurate fit possible: Computerized CAD/CAM imaging provides the greatest accuracy when creating your new crown. There’s not a risk of your impression or model material becoming warped due to environmental factors, so there’s almost no risk of the crown not fitting properly. Human error is eliminated!

Made on site: CEREC milling equipment is on-site, so that your new dental crown is made and delivered on the very same day.

Strong, durable materials: Advanced ceramics and porcelain used in CEREC crowns make them some of the longest lasting restorations used in modern dentistry.

Aesthetically pleasing: With a CEREC crown, your entire restoration is made of tooth colored materials. There’s never a risk of an unsightly “grey line” of metal along your gumlines.
